New Laser Cloaking Technology Creates ‘Time Holes’ – Allows You To ‘Erase History’ [VIDEO

When Alice went down the rabbit hole, she may have felt that she might never get back (though she did eventually). But some types of information can be sent into a ‘time hole’ and truly never come back.

A team of engineers (Lukens et al) at Purdue University has developing an optical (laser-based) cloaking method that can hide high-speed data streams such as those transmitted through telecommunication systems. The new method makes possible “ultra-secure message transmission” that side-steps current efforts in quantum cryptography.

Regarding this comparison, Joseph Lukens, an electrical engineer at Purdue University and lead author of the latest study, stated: “It doesn’t just prevent eavesdroppers from reading your data — they wouldn’t even know there was any data there to hack.” [source: see link, below]

The new cloaking method actually takes advantage of a phenomenon discovered over 150 years ago by British inventor Henry Fox Talbot (1836). Talbot found that when he allowed light to pass through a series of parallel slits in a screen (known as a diffraction grating or gradient), the light rays passing through the screen produced an intricate (and beautiful) interference pattern of regularly-spaced ‘peaks and troughs’ (light and dark lines/shapes). He found that this pattern repeats at periodic intervals. This light-interference pattern became known as the “Talbot carpet” or Talbot effect.

Subsequent experiments (McCall, 2010) with this phenomenon revealed a temporal version of the Talbot carpet; the effect can be manipulated in time to generate periodic events with zero light intensity — ‘time pockets’ — by pulling light waves apart and then putting them back together again (i.e., compressing the separated frequencies).

The New Temporal Cloaking Method

Expanding on these two key phenomena, Luken’s research team created their Talbot carpet using laser light. In this approach, the laser beam is passed through a phase modulator, which works as a wave guide. They then applied an oscillating electrical voltage to the guide. As they varied the voltage, the speed of the laser light was altered as well — splitting up the light into its constituent frequencies and pushing them ‘out of phase’ with each other. But these distinct frequencies recombined “destructively”, meaning that they cancelled out certain frequencies, generating ‘time holes’ (note: this step would correspond to Talbot’s discovery of light wave interference patterns as light passed through the slitted grating)

However, these temporal holes have a very short lifespan (lasting less than a trillionth of a second). And so, Lukens and his team repeated the process so as to compress the total energy of the system and consequently lengthening the duration of the time holes (to 36 trillionths of a second, or 36 picoseconds).

The research team subsequently found that a significant volume of data can be cloaked by these ‘holes in time.’

Next, to test the method’s ability at cloaking actual data, the team inserted a new (encoded) data stream into the fiber during (in phase with) these time holes, or windows, and applied an additional two more rounds of phase modulation (to “undo” the phase changes from the first two rounds). This allowed the energy (laser light signal) to decompress and then recombine the separated frequencies back into one light signal.

Finally, the team confirmed that a downstream user (the recipient) would see only the original (unperturbed) laser signal; no trace of the time/phase modulation could be discerned. thus the method successfully cloaked the data — at a remarkable rate of 12.7 gigabits per second.

Had to read this a few times but i think i finally got the gist of it.seems pretty amazing,could explain why SETI
never picks anything up if ET's were communicating in this way as there would simply be nothing there to pick up.just a thought.
Thanks Pheonix Rising,your finding some really interesting stuff lately!
:cheers:

Yeah i'm the same Skydog I'm not that savy with science lingo so have to sometimes read things a few times, and still i sometimes don't get it lol :flop:

Truly amazing stuff. Not only would this help improve privacy, it could also help prevent identity theft, another major problem today. And as to alien communications, this could certainly throw a wrench into us answering the question 'Are we alone?'.
